Tseschu Festival

  

  Tseschu Festival is held in many monasteries of the Indian subcontinent to commemorate the birth of Padmasambhava. It is observed for three days from the tenth day of Dawa Napha in Sikkim, while in Ladakh it is celebrated from the tenth day of Dawa Dhunpha. The day is also said to mark the victory of Lamaism over Shamanism and other religious practices which were considered base in pre-Buddhist Tibet and its adjoining lands. The festival symbolizes the strength of good over evil, knowledge over ignorance and virtue over vice.
